SUB-20 · THOMAS
DIMUZIO- Amid Zero Echo      2 x 10"

Thomas
Dimuzio's Amid Zero Echo marks the new release from
this US underground legend from San Francisco, whose massive
hypnotic soundscapes already released in the 90's were much
ahead of the time!

Four new
transcendental drone masterworks abstracted from electric
guitar bristle with life through the dense, rich and detailed
sonic expanse of Dimuzio's glorious sound world. Vibrating
wires of the electric guitar inform a digital musique concrete
modus operandi replete with unheard studio techniques which
form a music with a strong organic core. These four drones open
wide rooms for phantastic aural imaginations: like flying
over endless grounds of unknown origin, sensing a heavy
suction of extreme gravity, moving towards a black hole
center… or driving into a totally dark mining tunnel with
all the metallic ore and dust around…. These are drones
that LIVE from the inside!
Striking gatefold artwork by
Mars Wellink showcases two clear vinyl 10"s in an equally
compelling and beautifully designed package (gatefold-cover!).
Lim. ed. 500 copies.

 Thomas Dimuzio is a musician, composer, sound
designer, mastering engineer, label proprietor, and music
technologist residing in San Francisco, California.
Inspired as much by John Cage as Led Zeppelin, Dimuzio's music
forms a sonic excursion that transports the listener into
other worldly aural realms. “His work has a narrative, filmic
tug that will draw you into its dark corners, ears alert…
brilliant and rarely less than entertaining.” [Peter Marsh,
BBC]

Long regarded
as a musical pioneer for his innovative use of live sampling
and looping techniques, Dimuzio has earned a deserved
reputation worldwide as an avant-garde sound artist in touch
with the aesthetic pulse of time and technology. A true sonic
alchemist who can seemingly create music events out of almost
anything, Dimuzio's listed sound sources on his various
releases include everything from 'modified 10 speed bicycle'
and 'resonating water pipe' to short-wave radios, loops,
feedback, samplers, synthesizers and even normal instruments
such as guitar, clarinet and trumpet. Dimuzio's eclecticism
bespeaks a career equally informed by a profound dedication to
his craft and collaborations with friends, artists and
technologists alike.

Dimuzio's

recordings have been released internationally by
ReR Megacorp, Asphodel, RRRecords, No Fun
Productions, Sonoris, Record Label Records, Odd
Size, Seeland, and other independent labels.
Among his collaborators are Chris Cutler, Dan
Burke, Joseph Hammer, Anla Courtis, Nick
Didkovsky, Due Process, Voice of Eye, Fred
Frith, David Lee Myers, 5uu's, Matmos, Wobbly
and Negativland.
